Hotel Annapoorna Andhra Restaurant in Gandhinagar Majestic Bangalore

In the 1980s, Bengaluru saw the rise of Andhra food with the pappu-led vegetarian meals and spicy biryanis by the likes of Nagarjuna, Nandhini, Nandhana and various other chain of Andhra restaurants. What’s relatively less known is – the foundation of this delicious Andhra food cuisine in Bengaluru happened in the 1970s by Hotel Annapoorna.

Located in the bylanes of Majestic – Hotel Annapoorna serves delicious and spicy Andhra food for vegetarians and non-vegetarians under a basic ambiance and easy on the pocket (compared to the popular Andhra chains).
